The Spice Girls have added three dates to their reunion tour, bringing the total number of concerts to 14 in December and January.

A show in Vancouver, Canada, on Dec. 2 is the first date on the revised tour, followed by a concert in San Jose, Calif., on Dec. 4, promoters said Friday.

They are also adding a show in Shanghai, China, on Jan. 10, said the announcement from the Outside Organization, a London-based public relations firm.

The original Girl Power group of the 1990s announced the tour at a press conference in London in late June. Other stops include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, London and Hong Kong.

Their first single, “Wannabe,” was released in 1996 and topped the charts in 31 countries. They went on to sell more than 55 million records.

The shows will be their first concerts since they broke up in 2001, and the first with all five of the original group since Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell quit to pursue a solo career in 1998.

Their last album, “Forever,” released in 2000 and without Halliwell, fared poorly.

Other members of the Spice Girls are Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm, Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton and Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown.

EMI has said it plans to release the first Spice Girls greatest-hits album in November.
